Grilled Ahi Tuna with Fresh Mango Salsa


The irresistible flavor of grilled tuna steaks pairs perfectly with a sweet, slightly spicy mango salsa in this fun and easy recipe. Start with 6 oz. thick and meaty Yellowfin Tuna Steaks and grill them to your favorite doneness (we like them seared just on the outside and uncooked in the middle).

How to Grill Tuna Steaks

Don’t be afraid to grill tuna steaks. We love them because, well, they’re steaks! You can treat thick-cut tuna steaks just like beef on the grill — sear the outside and leave the inside medium-rare or cook them all the way through. View our comprehensive guide – How to Grill Ahi Tuna Steaks for a perfectly cooked tuna steak every time using a gas or charcoal grill.

Fresh Mango Salsa

The mango salsa is prepared in a flash with fresh chopped mango, peppers, onions, cilantro, bell peppers, lime juice and jalapeños, and served on top of the grilled tuna for a colorful, quick and healthy meal. The flavors of this sweet, slightly spicy and refreshing fruit salsa are incredible and a perfect complement to a grilled ahi tuna steak. Enjoy!
